I did a fresh install of Windows 2003 Small Business Server R2. At this point I was able to access the server shares. Went to Microsoft update & installed Service Pack 2. Now I cannot access the server shares from a client computer.

check the firewall settings, for testing purposes turn off the firewall, see if you can get access if so you know that it is the firewall and then you will have to do some exceptions.

When I went to view Windows Firewall settings, I get a message "Windows Firewall cannot run because another program is running that might use the network address translation component (Ipnet.sys)"

Can you ping the server from the client PC?

Also, can you access the server shares from the server itself?  

Check the event logs on the PC and the Server for any errors and post your findings.

I have seen this error before and it was AV software on the PC causing it.

While trying to resolve this problem, I continued to install more Microsoft updates. The problem has seemed to resolve itself for now.
